Bruno Mars Covers 'Billboard' Magazine

Bruno Mars Covers 'Billboard' Magazine

Bruno Mars graces the cover of Billboard‘s upcoming issue – his first magazine cover ever!

Here’s what the 25-year-old singer and songwriter had to share:

On fame: “When people fall is when they’re like, ‘OK. Now I’m here, what’s next? A clothing line?’ That’s not what I’m trying to do. It’s like, ‘Don’t be a slut. Remember your dream. Do you music and keep it special.’”

On his success in the business: “It’s a rare thing that happens, especially in this day, where it’s real hard to sell albums. I’m traveling to places that I’ve never even heard of and there are all these people singing the songs back – and English is not even their first language. It’s like, what the hell happened?”

On his plans for the future: “I’m itching and jonesing to get back into the studio and fantasizing about doing a side project. I’m such a fan of how Jack White and Danger Mouse get down and put these bands together. I’d love to be the drummer in a band that I’m producing, and sit back there and have someone else sing.”

  • Mlef

    Given the last covers of Rolling Stones, Bilboard etc etc those last months….I can tell you…
    American “journalists” don’t have no more any idea of what is real MUSIIIIIC !

    Did you ever heard of Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Kings of Leon, Wolfmother, Slash, Anna Calvi, etc etc…

    Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Kesha…Poor you…

  • Zoe Moon

    I love watching him perform. He and his band are extraordinary. What a captiving young man!

  • skskj

    @Mlef: these artists are popular at the moment so why shouldnt they be on the cover of magazines?

  • BEAN

    I like him a lot. If you’re a singer – sing. If you’re an actor – act. Dont be a slut. Couldn’t have put it better

  • kablamo

    Still trying to figure out why anyone likes him.

  • Jay

    @kablamo: Hello?!? He’s talanted and good-looking dah!?

  • IllWill

    Good voice, but he was born a woman

  • Mlef

    @skskj:
    Mac Donalds are very popular too.
    I even go sometimes.

    But you found find any Mc Donalds in any tour guide, or any gastronomy repertory.

    Final Point.

  • Kiss

    he isnt talented.
    his voice is ok but autotuned and his lyrics rip off 80s popstars such as the beachboys.
    all he is is a sensation.

  • Joanna

    love him. Can’t believe i missed his concert when he was in town. ugh sold out

  • AB

    Bruno Mars and Adele are the most talented artist of this generation. So happy to have a real talent in music unlike all of the rubbish generic music that is on the radio. They deserve all of the sucess that they have and glad that they are kicking these no talent, lipsync, autotune on the charts.

  • kokosh

    Addiction is doing him good. ROTFL

  • GTFO

    He is SO annoying with his stupid as$ songs and his turtle head.

  • facts

    Maybe they should’ve asked him about his cocaine bust. Or is it only ok to give the ladies in music bad press?

  • camillus

    Don’t compare Bruno Mars to Adele. Adele would kick his coke using, pansy ass all over the charts. Adele is great. Bruno is nobody.

  • Kukee

    @facts:

    They did ask him about that. Try reading the full interview first.

  • Kukee

    Mars’ February charge for cocaine possession is discussed with similar frankness, and apparent humility. “It’s something that I wish would go away,” Mars says. “It’s a cloud that constantly follows me no matter how many achievements. I’d like to move on. To show that I’m here for my music. Not to be in a tabloid.”

    @Mlef:

    lame comparison. try something better you poor excuse for a music critic wannabe.

  • hooligan2011

    @IllWill:

    and you were born an amoeba. go back to the anus where you came from.

  • hooligan2011

    @Kiss:

    You are another ignoramus that needs to be pointed out. Kindly crawl to youtube.com and search for live performances by bruno mars so you will suddenly feel humiliated at how wrong you have been saying his voice is auto-tuned.

  • hooligan2011

    @camillus:

    We’re talking about talent here, F O O L. In terms of talent, he’s in the same caliber as Adele, and I’ll defend this opinion of mine even if I have to slap you silly.

  • stfu

    @hooligan2011: LMFAO at you pathetic stan trying to compare his whiny childish douchy songwriting to Adele’s. She has more soul and talent in her little finger than this dbag does in his entire body.

  • stfu

    @hooligan2011: He can’t SING live either. He sounds like a DYING CAT.
